Frames of Reference in Space

  • John Vince


This chapter complements Chap.  9 by developing 3D transforms for rotating frames of reference with fixed points. This includes translated and rotated frames, and a combination of the two about Cartesian, off-set and arbitrary axes. It then explores Euler composite rotations. The chapter concludes with a summary and a list of the transforms covered.
